September Sermon Series

When you let loose your breath, they are created,
    and you make the surface of the ground brand-new again.     
Psalm 104:30

Creation and the Christian

Season of Creation Series

For two thousand years, Christians have confessed God as the Creator of Heaven and Earth.  Yet, we have often disconnected our confession with our practices and ethics.

This series will proclaim that the the Spirit is breathing life into creation, suffering with creation and renewing all creation.  Worshipers will be invited to align themselves with the activity of the Spirit.
